Hyster forklift fluid specs

Q: What lubricants do I use on my Hyster or Yale forklift?

A: It depends. Using the wrong lubricants on your forklift can damage the truck and put its operator in danger. Check below for the correct fluid specs for various models of Hyster and Yale trucks.

  2. what type and capacity hydraulic fluid for a 1989 hyster H80xle
    thanks

  3. We just bought a new S40-70FT LPG 5,000 forklift. Do you have a diagram that shows all the fluid checks? Brakes, steering, transmission… I can’t find anything in the manual. I may have over looked it. Thanks
